Blalsdell adjourned court and Bridget will

Strenuous efforts ore binc made by the
producers 8IrnUOIA the exposed 10 II ill lie that L zjle
and Emma Borden had nuarrol ed to bolster
up their 10rttn detective and n looal news
paper man ore going to or already harp made
affidavits stating that Mrs iteairan the
matron laid them the story But an incident
happened this evening that wiakona their
case tn When Lawyer Jennings heard that the
writers of the lie wero going to maintain that
it was true ho drew up the following paper
I This Is to certify that my attention has
been called to a renort slid to have been made
caled renor
by me in regard tun quarrel between Lizzie
Borden and her sister Knima In which Llzzlo
said to Emma You save mo away Ac and I
expressly nud positively deny that any such
Ild llel
conversation took place or that 1 over so re
ported and I further deny that I over heard
anything that could bo construed Into a nuar
tel between the sisters
After court adjourned this evening Lawyer
Jennings took this paper to Matron Iteagan
who aid she would have to consult the mar
shal before signing it Marshal Billiard re
fused to allow her to sign It Now why argues
Mr Jennings would Matron 1Iooln be willing
to sign an affidavit denying tho lie If sho had I
ever said it was true
Furthermore Matron Hengan said last night
to a reporter working for the mld that the
story was not true Or oven If Matron liuiitan
could say It Is true Emma Harden who Is I hon
est und accused nothing as well as Lizzie
Borden nnd Lawyer Jennings will deny the
story And the aflldavltsof these throe people
two of whom at least nro ut unquestioned
veracity will stand

tracks in the annexed district arid to use any
motive power other than steam In other

In signing this ordinance Mayor Grnntsays
In approving of this act I do so feeling that
It is in lino with the vfowa that I have roI l
ously expressed the use of electricity for
street railroads In the district north of the
Harlem Itlver The Board of Electrical Con
trol discussed this matter some ago and de
cided that It wan advisable to sanction tho use
of electricity as a motive power on the Street
railroads III this district The annexed dis
trict Is very much in need ot increased rapid
transit facilities rime comments of the prop
oily owners along tho proponed routes of the
new road show that tho people favor the trol
IIOW I Rstom
Tho opposition that has been expressed
toward It appears to come from rival corpora
tions rather than from tho residents of time
